Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)

The solution to solve the following error in MOSS:

Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)

could be two things:

  1. There are some closed but not deleted webparts still active on the webpage.
    Go to http:\URLdefault.aspx?contents=1 and delete all inactive and closed webparts.
  2. If there is a content editor webpart on this page than:
    In some cases there was an embedded

    tag inside the

    tag that the Content Editor web part renders.  This div tag was previously rendered by another Content Editor web part and was cut & pasted into the rich text editor of the new web part.  In other words, the rendered content of one web part was used as a basis for the new web part by selecting the HTML in the browser, copying it to the clipboard, and pasting it into the rich text editor of the new web part for editing.  In doing so, the old web part’s rendered

    tag was nested into the new web part’s rendered div tag.
    Solution: delete the content-webpart since you are no longer be able to edit this webpart after this error occurs.
